I think its nice that no one has started screaming, yet.
What are "SDs" ??
Standard Deviation from the norm IE it is a mathematic term/concept.
I see. Thank u.
In this case meaning that your views on life are far out
on the bell curve of what the vast majority of the population hold.
In candor, I can t deny that
(and I thank u, BLESS U
for writing it in such perfect, flawless
I gotta be me. I stand for LIBERTY
In any case it is the job and duty of parents to filter and control the exposed of viewpoints
but do thay have the RIGHT
So far as I can see, unless the kid has CONSENTED
neither thay nor society has any RIGHT
from the kid.
( I will admit
that parents have the right to withdraw financial support for failure to co-operate.)
I believe that the rightful power to govern comes from CONSENT of the governed
Kids are no exception to that.
until the children intellect and emotional maturity reach a level
that they can deal with them in a logical manner for themselves.
In some cases, the kids may be smarter than the parents.
For instance, I believe that Andrea Yates's kids (whom she drowned in her bathtub)
were smarter than she was when thay fled (however unsuccessfully).
I remember as a kid, asking my father not to smoke.
He was stinking me out.
That did not work out very well. It thereafter negatively affected his health.
Will u comment on this (Bill or anyone) ?
Maybe 5 years ago, I parked in the lot for a restaurant on Long Island.
I walked toward its front door. I saw a well-dressed clean cut looking boy c.11 years old
also approaching that door walking near me. He looked at the palm of one of his hands.
I saw that it was BLACK
I don 't
claim to be a mindreader, but SOMEHOW
that he was considering licking his hand.
He was walking very near me.
As a libertarian, my disposition was to say nothing.
I have no authority over him.
I saw him lick his black hand. I hope that he did not get poisoned.
I did nothing. Do u agree with my choice to mind my own business ?
